larsniclas (7075) - Billdal, SWEDEN - AUG 12, 2016
Bottled from Ica Åkered. ABV 3.5%
Deep folden with a medium head.
Sweet aroma and flavour with toffee.
Medium to high bitterness. olsvammel (7225) - Örebro, SWEDEN - AUG 11, 2016
Bottle from Bottl3.5hop in Stockholm. Hoppy smell with citrus, pine and some grapefruit. Similar hoppy aroma in the taste but also a malty caramel backbone. Medium bitterness. Nice for a low ABV beer. HippieFee (446) - - AUG 8, 2016
Can - Slight sweet smell to it from all the malt varieties. Nice Amber color as well. Good balance of malt and hops, neither flavor profile is over powering the other. With all the varietals of hops and malt, I really don’t taste any single flavor just a lot of balanced nuance on the palate. GJF (1520) - Mount Vernon, Iowa, USA - AUG 8, 2016
Can at the Lincoln Wine Bar. Surprisingly good. Bigger body than most sessions. Crisp flavors. Really good for a hot summer evening. BeerFanDan17 (1120) - Brunswick, Maine, USA - AUG 7, 2016
Exceptionally smooth. Hoppy, but not too light. Nice body and thick head. Good light citrus notes.

Poured from a can. I’m tempted to give this beer a perfect score just because the quality of flavors and richness defy 3.8%?! Looks beautiful, technically sound in clarity with a healthy pillowy head. Malt is smooth and rich, nose is up in my grill with an aggressive west coast theme in the entire sensory realm. Damn BP..damn. HuskerTan (2203) - Ravenna, Nebraska, USA - JUL 20, 2016
UPDATED: JUL 21, 2016 Can.
A- Subtle pine, caramel malt, mango, citrus, stone fruits.
A- Amber color, clear liquid, off white head.
T- Subtle bitterness, citrus, tropical fruits.
P- Light body, average texture, average carbonation, balanced finish.
O- This is light! About as session as it gets. Very balanced between the bitterness, malt, and notes of citrus. There was nothing that stood out and made me say wow, other than wow, this is solid and I could drink a ton. kevinsenn (2215) - Waterloo, Ontario, CANADA - JUL 18, 2016
Can. Light tropical aroma. Light floral, grassy, and tropical hop taste, with a dry medium bitter finish. MetalNHopHead (1976) - Lincoln, Nebraska, USA - JUL 13, 2016
With an ABV of only 3.8%, Even Keel is laid-back, even by Session IPA standards. With a modest 40 IBU’s the bitterness scale is similarly "even." That’s the kind of result you’d expect with 10 malt varieties, 6 hop varieties, and 2 yeast strains. Small beer doesn’t always mean a scaled-down brewing process. Golden pour. As you’d think, there’s a large dosage of lemon, grapefruit, and pine. However, don’t be surprised to note some malty sweetness. Crisp and slightly sticky texture. If all-day enjoyment is your thing, Even Keel is one of Ballast Point’s best. Doofgoblin (513) - Chevy Chase, Washington DC, USA - JUL 13, 2016
This is probably one of my favorite session ipas. The aroma is really crisp and the taste is very hoppy with a nice bite of bitter. No really strong characteristics populate this beer but it’s got a nice strong generic hop aroma and taste that seems very fresh. It’s not really overly complicated, which is really within the style. Plus the low alcohol is a great way to mow the yard and not cut off your toes.
